Live Blogging The Nationwide Series From Kansas (ESPN2 - 3PM)


Here we go with another college football Saturday. On ESPN2, Iowa is playing Arkansas State and the game started at noon ET. NASCAR Countdown is scheduled for 3PM and the Nationwide Series race itself is at 3:30PM.

Allen Bestwick is poised to kick off the coverage with Rusty Wallace and Brad Daugherty alongside. This trio is reliable, dependable and excitable. As you can see from the picture above, Tony Eury Sr. is back in the Keselowski pit this week after getting injured in a Charlotte area auto accident recently. Good news.

Marty Reid is back and perhaps this week Dale Jarrett will be back on his game and give fans a feeling for what he can really do on TV. Andy Petree is always solid, but Jarrett is the star of this show and he needs to shine.

This is going to be a race filled with great stories due to a wide variety of circumstances. Sprint Cup Series veterans are mixed with rookies out to make a name for themselves and several Nationwide regulars just trying to hold on for the rest of the season.

The ESPN pit reporting corps of Jamie Little, Shannon Spake, Vince Welch and Dave Burns will be covering the live action. They may have to hustle as this big and fast track is known for producing a lot of incidents, especially with the scenario building for this race.

The ESPN production team is not slaved to a Chase format for these events and normally does not use all the bells and whistles available to them. Several Nationwide Series races produced by the team this season have simply been fun to watch. Hopefully, Kansas will join that list.

The battle for ESPN this season on shared weekends it that the Nationwide race becomes suddenly a bother. In fact, this series often produces much better racing than the its Sprint Cup big brother. Translating that to TV by giving it the same level of attention as the Sunday event is the challenge.

This post will update in the comments section the transition between the college football game and the NASCAR telecast. ESPN has a bad habit of waiting until the last minute to inform viewers of what is happening. The best guess is that ESPN Classic will once again get a visit from Allen Bestwick and company.

Note to Canadian viewers: Initially, TSN was going to join the coverage in progress at 4:00pm because of 2 CFL games being covered before and after the race. After some pressure put on TSN by George Webster (Racefan TV website) and yours truly, TSN will attempt to join the coverage earlier than 4:00pm if the CFL game ends early. So tune in to TSN around 3:30pm just in case to get more coverage than initially scheduled.

Newracefan said...

DVR1 on Classic, DVR2 on ESPN2. I'm going to take a shower either I'm rewinding 1 or the other which ever wins.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Another wild TV weekend for the Nationwide Series.

Erik said...

I like Arky State's running game, keeps the clock moving.

Daly Planet Editor said...

That field goal really sealed the deal.

boyd said...

How long can 4 minutes in football time take?

Dot said...

@ boyd, about 20 minutes.

MikeC said...

I always figure for every minute of playing time in a football game, it comes out to about 3 minutes in real-time.

boyd said...

Dot,
we just need state to keep running so the clock runs out quickly.
Classic or the Duece?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Is NASCAR on Classic right now?

Erik said...

Well, Akry will need to recover an onside kick now after wasting that timeout. This game sholdn't take too much longer.

Countdown on Classic

Labbie said...

countdown on classic

PammH said...

On Classic now.

boyd said...

Classic right now

Daly Planet Editor said...

Well, this is going to take a while now.

PammH said...

Pushing Edwards & Boyer as local boys. Mentioning new kid as polesitter.

Erik said...

Kligerman with the first interview...

boyd said...

Classic here isn't in HD, my what a waste of 50 inches.

boyd said...

Did they even mention the switch on 2?

PammH said...

talking about the winds from yesterday. is track aging well? Rusty blathering..

Dot said...

Was there a program alert on BSPN2?

JD, you here? Please turn off word veri. Thanks.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Kligerman among those veterans is going to be a great story today.

Erik said...

Rusty wallace talking about the surface of the racetrack, on how bad it is.

Daly Planet Editor said...

At least there are two grooves.

PammH said...

Clint being interviewed now. He qualified poorly.

Erik said...

Burns interviewing clint ... "How do you go from 31st to 1st Today"? Clint "Well, I hoped you had that answer"

Dot said...

The seams are causing problems. Ought to make for some exciting racing.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Thanks for the reminder. They did one graphic crawl but the announcers never mentioned it.

Erik said...

Burns confused with the "Border Battle" with Carl Edwards, screwed up by thinking it was for the nationwide series. Clint had to correct him.

PammH said...

Comparing Kryle, Brad & Carl's stats. Now interviewing Carl. He's still on crutches, driving a pink car today.

Sophia said...

special incentive to race near home, Carl? Asks Jamie...stupid obvious question.

she is just annoying

boyd said...

Like the pink number 60. Nice to race for the cause.

Erik said...

Showing a pumpkin patch now, joking around.

PammH said...

talking about how beautiful it is there today. Brad's fav holiday is Halloween-they showed kidlets & pumpkins.

Sophia said...

I am seeing a commercial for Crown Royal and they are pouring the booze in a glass. First time I'd seen that in years!

Great lighting on the liquor in those commercials. I notice stuff like that. :)

PammH said...

showing the problem between Dimmy & Brad from last wk now.

MikeC said...

Football is over on ESPN2

Sophia said...

showing skies with lots of cumulus clouds...Alan, Rusty, brad in the booth.

Erik said...

Not the smothest of switchovers.

Sophia said...

ok its on ESPN2 now AB just welcomed from Col FB

PammH said...

beautiful overview of the track. Rusty says Brad is respected in garage by most drivers. but some think he is too aggressive. geez, which is it?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Great aerial shot! What a beautiful place.

Dot said...

@ boyd, 4 minutes equals 14.

Sophia said...

PammH

Brad K is both..depends on outlook.

Reality in eyes of beholder and all that. :-D

boyd said...

@dot,
Thanks, but better than 20.

Dot said...

Brad D would make an excellent politician.

Erik said...

I think i have swine flu, not feeling that well. 102.4 temp. even though with the great weather outside, hopefully there will be a great race to watch right now while i sip plenty of fluids.

Sophia said...

Mikey's tweet about Jimmy S wrecking him on dirt track...not exactly G rated. He's a trip on Twitter

PammH said...

@Sophia-good point about Brad.

Dot said...

@ JD, I hope you enjoyed that aerial shot. It's the last time you'll see it today.

boyd said...

Ok Rusty,
How do you hunker down with the HANS device now?

Erik said...

wow, great description by rusty, eyes popping out, just wow.

Sophia said...

Erik Hope you are kidding about the flu.

My friends son had it and was in childrens' hospital over a month, collapsed lung, fluid pressure caused it: drained over a pint of fluid, fluid came back even with massive antibiotics.

THEN he developed more fluids & could not breathe, did surgery and he had major abscess on lung. finally released & came home but was on 6 weeks of PICC Line Antibiotics. He's 16 and youth are vulnerable.

The ones around here have died rather quickly. 5 -14 days if not properly treated.

So yes there IS hysteria of swine flu so I hope you are kidding.
:)

Daly Planet Editor said...

Need to get some meds on board there Erik. Medi-center time!

boyd said...

@Erik
If you need lots of fluids watch tomorrow and play the Dr. Punch drinking game.

red said...

wait! what? "your eyeballs pop out"? and that's happened to drivers? ok, this is SO news to me.
anyone else?

@erik: do not be stubborn! hydrate and get a dr appointment ASAP: fever of 102+ is symptomatic.

Dot said...

@ boyd, too funny.

@ Erik, not laughing at you being sick.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Going to be fun to see what Kligerman can do with Kyle and Carl today.

inkthatpaints said...

Tim Brewer - please take a drink of water before your piece. The noise you make from your dry mouth is the most annoying thing ever and it happens all the time with you.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Is Kligerman in a Penske rental or is Allgaier sitting one out?

PammH said...

Wow! They are really using the blimp pre-race today. Great shots!! Couldn't pay me to live there tho-Tornado Alley ~shiver~

boyd said...

He's in a team car. Both in the race.

Sophia said...

ERik

If you suspect flu, go to urgent care.

The OB Gyn that took over my late brother in laws practics is now handing out "flu kits" to all pregnant women. That's how serious things are around here.

He doesn't want somebody getting sick over a weekend or out of town. There is a specific antibiotic you need to cover for H1N1 flu.

Also our neighbor died yesterday after first being told he had pneumonia in June. But when he did not get better, found cancer in lungs, stomach, liver and later, brain.

So maybe I am just overly sensitive about medical jokes. Sorry. been crazy summer.

but Erik take care of yourself. Especially if you are young..kids seem most vulnerable.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Thanks boyd, wondered about that.

Erik said...

Its the secondary infections that can come in and wreck havok. Had a script for Tamiflu turned in earlier, though the pharmacies are all backed up, like the clinic i went. guessing influenza, though seasonal or swine is unknown.

Sophia said...

Dumb question who is Kligerman?

I have seriously not been keeping up with NASCAR news so be kind.:)

Sophia said...

starting anthem in nice low range...

Daly Planet Editor said...

Martin, are you getting the race up there yet? Keep us posted...

boyd said...

@Sophia,
Great little racer, has more ARCA wins than anyone this year. Penske has been helping him on that side.

boyd said...

On of the better anthems this year!

Sophia said...

For the land?

thought it was oer the land? Must've mis heard.

Decent job tho

Sophia said...

Thanks Boyd. I'm irked I missed ARCA yesterday since Schrader was in the booth.:)

David said...

awake. lets go racin!!!

Parker is in a 2nd team, it is the #12's backup car from what Parker said after he won the pole on SPEED earlier.

This team is supposedly the beginning of Brad Keselowski's Nationwide team for 2010

6p010535e43b89970c said...

Bad singer who didn't know all the correct lyrics ... nor how to stay in one key ...

Erik said...

when was the last time has there been a story like Kligerman?

Karen said...

KyB respectful in his interview re: Kligerman.

red said...

@sophia and boyd: and i would add that kligerman is definitely a racer to watch. he's been tearing up arca and has a ton of talent. the pole run was no fluke.

and if anyone's looking for upcoming talent, i second jd's tweet last night: keep an eye on allie owens. she was just signed by venturini motorsports (yep: THAT venturini family!)

Daly Planet Editor said...

End of the season is always interesting. Like new baseball players who get called up late and hit a homerun.

pghttwood said...

marty reid has no energy so far today

Dot said...

My wish is that Parker takes out Weed on the first lap. Excuse? Rookie mistake.

What did Burns say? My TV froze up.

Sophia said...

6po1

glad somebody else noticed the wrong lyrics in anthem. Kind of surprising since graphic said she was a VETERAN?

Karen said...

Anyone of significance who DNQ? Had to miss this a.m.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Hey, she let it roll. Nice to see.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Karen, they had tons of cars, I think five went home.

Dot said...

Yeah, that's right BSPN. Keep showing those aerial shots before the race. How about during?

pghttwood said...

that was embarrassing.

Sophia said...

looks cloudy in Kansas. Dare I ask about rain chance?

Kligerman makes me think of MASH even though I know an N is missing. . .

6p010535e43b89970c said...

Parker Kligerman runs ARCA for Cunningham Motorsports ... They're the official Penske Development team ... Truck Series driver Tayler Malsam drove for them last season ...

Kligerman is running a few races for Penske this year to get the 2nd N'wide team up & running for Keselowski for next season ...

Chris Carrier is crew chiefing both the ARCA team and N'wide team for Parker ...

Parker won the ARCA race on Thurs at Kansas ... making it his 8th win this season ...

pghttwood said...

clint bowyer=no personality

Daly Planet Editor said...

Hope these guys don't pile up early. This could be some good racing.

6p010535e43b89970c said...

Morgan DNQ'd again ... Too many S&Ps stealing Jesus' thunder ...

Daly Planet Editor said...

Think Clint was not too happy about his position today. He really racked that car up in practice.

boyd said...

Any way we can get Marty for tomorrows race? Dr. would have me yawning by now.

Sophia said...

Shame Penske pulled out of Saturn deal and Saturn going under.

On the otherhand..he has enough money to sponsor IRL!! But so does Menard according to Miller...but he's not been offered.

Thanks for the info on what i've been missing. I missed it if it was on Twitter or it went over me head

Dot said...

Regarding Morgan not qualifying. This is the reason that NASCAR needs to do something about the S&Ps. Morgan at least makes an effort to run the entire race.

Sophia said...

How do some of y'all member your niknames? interesting spellings and that one long number looks like a Vehicle ID #

:)

Daly Planet Editor said...

Sophia, he could not find a partner who would make the cars for him. He was not pleased.

An electric Saturn could have changed the US dramatically.

Looks like Chevy and Toyota will be first now.

Sophia said...

JD

THanks I didn't hear that little kernel on lack of car makers.

Dot said...

Didn't take long, did it?

Sophia said...

who's the 23 please!

I hate numbers..I don't know all names/#

RRichardson...finally TYou

Vicky D said...

Back from running errands just in time to see green flag. Glad home town driver is starting up front first. Marty is already a breath of fresh air in the studio. Hope AP & DJ are on their game.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Too bad, Sheltra is a good guy and that Daytona crash was huge.

DJ really seems to be in the swing with Marty now, he was even good on practice yesterday.

David said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
boyd said...

I think DJ just appreciates a real pxp guy so he doesn't have to try and carry the broadcast.

David said...

tia, Morgan used to start and park back in the day before he got Tony Stewart and Kevin Harvick to supplement his program so I don't find myself feeling toooo horribly over it. Though MSRP is a joke.

Daly Planet Editor said...

I get stuck on all kinds of mailing lists now thanks to TDP.

The race to get an electric car out that can serve consumers who travel less than 80 miles per day is huge.

Some will not contain a gas engine and must recharge by cord. Those are going to be cheap!

David said...

Racing deal looked like. Sheltra was trying to clear himself and Richardson's car wouldnt turn.

Pretty okay with the broadcast from what Ive seen so far

red said...

well, methinks kligerman has embarassed young mr busch on that restart. doubt that will happen again!

Vicky D said...

Like Larry Mac says of the rookies - he doesn't know what he doesn't know! Go Parker.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Good racing, come on ESPN...stay wide for us please!

Sally said...

JD, I've always wondered...with those plug in electric cars, what happens to your electric bill, recharging your car?

Karen said...

red, took the words right out of my mouth.

Vicky D said...

Marty is saying - there's a lot of racing going on here. I hope we get to see it, Marty!!!

Sally said...

I'd be more impressed with them finding cars farther back in the field if they weren't Cup drivers.

Martin Vincent said...

@JD - Still watching CFL football here in Canada, but TSN has just mentioned on air that they would join the race in progress. About a minute left on the clock.

About the DNQs, 8 went home. The regular teams that DNQed were #52 and #89, both of Brian Keselowski's cars #92 Willie Allen and #96 Michael McDowell didn't make it. His #26 is on loan to Kevin Conway and TDP-favorite ExtenZe, but it's really an R3 Motorsports car owned by Robert Richardson.

Dot said...

@ Sally, that's my question too. My electric bills in the summer are over $200. Of course the power company has a summer surcharge for running the AC.

Martin Vincenth said...

17 seconds on the clock, we're not even going to make our scheduled start time of 4:00pm.

Sophia said...

Sally
SOME plug in cars up your utility $100 a month..so that's something folks have to investigate..as trade off on saving fuel..as well as their outlook on environmental isssues.

Some say it's cars..some blame corporate farming & too many animals for instance.

but they just spoke of this a few months ago on local talk radio (gas costs vs CHARGING electric car)

Will depend on many things

Daly Planet Editor said...

Sally, they are testing right now to decide if it will be a three prong plug or a big one like your dryer uses.

The cost is low and some of the technology allows a car to recharge completely in like 20 min.

When it happens, it will change the world entirely. Flex-fuel is also big down here in FL and it is almost under $2 per gallon now.

Throw in the Cash for Clunkers program and I think we saved most of the auto industry.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Have you noticed that Marty has not called out the start and park cars today?

Martin Vincent said...

TSN finally switched to the Nationwide race, 22 laps into the race. TSN felt the need to have an announcer tell us they were joining the race in progress and he called the pole sitter Kilgerman.

Dot said...

And the curse lives on.

kbaskins said...

TSN just joined the race. Absolutely no post-game interviews from the football game. Kinda feel sorry for the football fans. I know i hate it when it happens to us race fans.

--KarenB

Dot said...

@ JD, Marty did mention a couple of them a while ago.

Sally said...

Thanks for the info everyone. I think I'll stay happy with my Honda Si for a few more years!

Charlie said...

I would like to see one battle at a time instead of the two windows if the position they are going for is not the lead. Hard to figure where they are on the track.

This broadcast seems to like two windows.

6p010535e43b89970c said...

Jimmie's bro is a S&P ...

Sophia said...

Sally
AND electric cars will have huge sticker price over other cars.

Karen said...

JD, Marty called out two cars, then five or six, now two more. You need to put your bionic ear back on.

Daly Planet Editor said...

The whole idea is to offer a wide perspective, letting us at home get a clue of who is where.

Then, focus on a battle until it is over, go wide and then do it again.

We get lost when they jump from tight shot to tight shot. Makes no sense at all.

Sally said...

So, was I just disttracted by reading the info on electric dars, or did the front of the field change significantly while they were filling time with other Cup drivers?

boyd said...

I drive over 50K miles a year for business, when they talk over 500 miles on a charge, I'll listen.

Sophia said...

Charlie

Agree on the two windows..over used.
off for a break to do other things

Martin Vincent said...

Looks like S&P teams are #05, #07, #47, #78, #49, #91, #90 and #44. Looks like the #87 could be the only team left that hasn't pulled out yet.

Vicky D said...

Dot your electric bills this summer were $200, ours were running at $500 a month. Very expensive. I noticed that Marty didn't mention Start & Parkers he just said the cars have gone behind the wall. Maybe that was a compromise to Nascar.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Gotcha! No more taking phone calls when the race is on!

Dot said...

Ten + seconds back to 7th. Time for a caution.

6p010535e43b89970c said...

So, Braddy's team used one driver to qualify ... and another to start & park it ...

Would've been hilarious had Marty said "McDowell driving Brad Daugherty's car just parked it" ... LOL ;-)

Sally said...

Well, they covered cars that are moving forward. Too bad we didn't get a chance to see any of the passes to get there, eh?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Sophia,

Those are the cars who contain an electic motor and a gas motor to recharge the electric one.

I am talking about the plug-in models that do not have a gas engine or anything that requires fossil fuel.

Those cars must pass safety inspections, but are expected to cost less than current economy models.

boyd said...

Why two boxes with one showing just the crew chief with the radios on? Not like he's saying anything to us.

kbaskins said...

Fox leaderboard: http://msn.foxsports.com/nascar/national/foxTrax

--KarenB

Daly Planet Editor said...

Think Keselowski has a little something to prove today.

Dot said...

@ Vicky D, Yikes!! And I thought my power company was greedy.

I was really hoping that the seams would make this race more exciting.

David said...

JD, from what I remember in school an instructor told me the Chevy Volt will be a HD plug like the dryer, and the issue they are having is the ability to get the price where it needs to be. Heard they were trying to knock another 10k off but not sure how thats going.

Your best bang for buck right now is a hybrid with turbo diesel technology. Just don't expect to run your hybrid forever since the battery pack lasts 8-9 years max.

Kligerman, no fear in this kid. Im actually more excited about him then Algaier

MV, whats the story with O'Quinn's #44 deal?

Sally said...

Guess he doesn't have to worry about Hamlin today, does he? ;-)

Martin Vincent said...

@6 - McDowell missed the race in Keselowski's #96 car, so JTG Daugherty pulled Chase Miller out of their S&P car to give McDowell some driver points and try to maintain his top-10 spot in the standings.

Correction on S&P, #07 is still out there and the #49 finally pulled out again after having been to the garage once.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Looks like the cream is rising to the top huh?

Charlie said...

You don't have to zoom in on the car you are talking about and stay with that car until the pit reporter is done.
I can listen and watch at the same time.

Sally said...

You mean the ones with the Cup drivers/money/resources behind them?

Martin Vincent said...

#87 has parked, so unless the #07 parks it too, we should be done with the S&P.

@David - I don't know what the deal is with O'Quinn, the #44 is a second SK Motorsports car, teammate to the #07. It's the first time SK has fielded two cars.

Sally said...

While they are showing the #18 running 2 sec. ahead, and his crew chief sitting there, Brad K is up to 5th? does it occur to ESPN that fans would like to see the passing as it happens, rather than telling us about it after it occurs?

Newracefan said...

MV did Danny O leave them or did they leave him. What I read said they were surprised by Danny's leaving the team. Whole thing doesn't make sense to me.

David said...

Thanks MV. That disappoints me DOQ would drive for that (insert not kind remark here) of an owner.

boyd said...

@Sally,
Why would they care what we want?

David said...

NRF, I've been trying to get the same answer but no one has the scoop. The indication given was like you said, Danny left the team not the other way around. Now why he left a team that was running the whole race for no ride at all or start and parking the way he has is beyond me. There is a story there, someone just needs to find it.

Sally said...

I can hope, can't I? with their ratings sliding downhill, I keep hoping that someone, somewhere will actually try to keep the fans that pay the bills happy. Call me an optimist.

Daly Planet Editor said...

No info out there on the Danny O thing that I could find and none in the double top secret email.

Charlie said...

If we could see wider shots we would enjoy the race more. Looks like there is passing going on.

Dot said...

Eighteen cars on the lead lap. Oh how I wish pool season wasn't over.

Martin Vincent said...

@NRF - I haven't heard anything about the disagreement between Danny O'Quinn Jr. and Johnny Davis that led to Danny leaving the team. Whatever it was, Johnny will only say they disagreed on something, but won't say what. Danny has said nothing about the split.

Martin Vincent said...

Ouch! Bad stop for Kligerman, looked like the front changer's air gun wasn't working when he tried the first time, the wheel was still hanging on the lugs.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Why wouldn't you double box green flag pit stops????

Martin Vincent said...

Surprise, surprise! Townley in the wall.

Dot said...

Leave it to JWT. Where was he 20 laps ago?

David said...

Good job JWT hanging onto that!

Dont often say anything nice but maybe the 20+ wrecks this year have taught him something...

PammH said...

Showing some of the pitstops is fine, but not showing any of the racing? Awful..

Martin Vincent said...

Looks like Sheltra's back in the race.

Dot said...

OK, for once it wasn't JWTs fault.

kbaskins said...

Townley again! We can always count on him. He crashed at just the right time for most of the field's pit stops too. Maybe he's on NASCAR's payroll. We should call him John Wes Piquet jr.

--KarenB

Sally said...

Any bets on how long it will take them to reset the field? The caution in the middle of green flag stops is going to REALLY mess up ESPN!

Charlie said...

Now does everyone understand where there car is before this restart?

That was confusing.

Dot said...

@kbaskins, too funny.

Now how many on the lead lap? And, what happens to the guys who pitted?

Dot said...

They may sort it out but, will they tell us?

6p010535e43b89970c said...

<-- Hates local ads ... esp when it's for TVW (WA version of cspan) ...

Sally said...

@Dot...you made me spit Golden Oreo crumbs all over my laptop!LMAO!

Dot said...

@ Sally, just doing my job.

Brendan is the LD.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Reset the field!

Charlie said...

It would have been neat to see the wave around cars go around and catch the back of the field. There were a bunch to watch.

red said...

@charlie: that is one of my biggest complaints in both n'wide and cup broadcast!
to the booth -- a clue! visual and audio do NOT have to match up. we are able to do at least 2 things at one time.

Karen said...

Sally, somebody else mentioned those Golden Oreos a couple weeks ago. Had to try and the ones with the chocolate inside are yummy.

Dot said...

How is Weed the leader? This whole thing is so confusing. I thought when you pitted and the caution came out, you were screwed. Does the DFR SOS change this?

Sally said...

JD, doesn't ESPN have acces to Nascar timing and scoring? Shouldn't they know as soon as Nascar does what the order is?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Man, this is just a mess. Mexican jumping beans in the control room today.

David said...

If Kyle had a big enough lead, which he did, he could come in, go back out on new tires and unlap himself under green before the caution. Therefore he was just in front of Biff, did not pit, and inherits the lead.

Its the beauty of being the leader and quite fast.

Sally said...

Karen, I just discovered them this summer! I have limited taste for chocolate, but love Oreos. Someone read my mind! Yummm!

TexasRaceLady said...

I'm getting seasick with all this jumpy camera work.

Please, make it stop!

Dot said...

Thanks David.

Notice how they're not showing the intervals?

Why is it the only top 5 go to the NW banquet?

boyd said...

Am I the only one that is totally confused now?

red said...

am i watching n'wide or cup right now? we're jumoing from shot to shot w/no continuity. booth is trying to make it coherent but it's just a mess for me right now.

David said...

Thank God this booth is starting to gel.

Work on hitting the zoom out button and we're set.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Can't get enough of Steven Wallace...

Karen said...

Well, that wave around rule explanation was clear as mud. And stop with the eyeballs popping out of their sockets. Never heard of that before. Makes sense but still new to me.

Sophia said...

Shocking, ESPN camera work is annoying.

David said...

Dot, I believe the CWTS and NW banquets are being combined so top 5 for both are going.

$$ thing

Daly Planet Editor said...

I get the best emails from NASCAR journalists. Too bad they can't publish what they think.

Bottom line, ESPN sucks.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Karen, that was interesting huh?

boyd said...

JD,
Please watch your language this is a family friendly site.
J/K

Charlie said...

Do a run down during caution.

Dot said...

@ David, thanks. At least Weed gets to be at a banquet after all.
